No egg Chocolate cake.

I missed the crazy Easter processions in Spain this year because of work in London, but I got out there soon after to see the fam and cook for a group of guests. I kissed this little face farewell with an 'hasta luego' back in September, not knowing it would be MONTHS before I'd go back home and he would be the size of a WOLF when I returned!
I knew I was going to be cooking for vegetarians when I was menu planning but I hadn't realised they didn't eat egg. When chocolate cake was requested and I couldn't use egg, I knew just who to call...Azelia. I knocked up Azelia's vegan chocolate cake recipe and added a little chocolate and coconut oil glaze. There's no butter or eggs in this cake and the secret ingredient is strawberry jam. The ingredient list sounds odd but I promise you it's a great,light cake and that it's the easiest thing I have ever made, all whipped up in one bowl.
If you are not vegan, blobbing a bit of cream on your plate is the way to make this cake a pud. 

Azelia's recipe from Azelia's kitchen
Pre-heat oven 170˚C fan / 190˚C / 375˚F/gas 5. Makes 10 muffins size cakes. Double the recipe for large cake but lower the temperature to 160˚C fan/180˚C/350˚F/gas 4.

  • 200g / ¾ cup jam
  • 125ml / ½ cup water
  • 100ml / ⅓ + 2tbsp cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa*
  • 50g / ¼ cup sugar
  • 250g / 1½ cups + 2tbsp plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cinnamon – optional
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together very well until the mixture is homogenised fill the muffins cakes ⅔ full and bake for 15-20mins. If doubling recipe for a large cake bake for 30-40mins.
*Dutch process cocoa powder will not react in this recipe as it needs the acidity in the natural cocoa powder (normal cocoa powder in UK) in order to react with the bicarbonate of soda.
If using Dutch processed omit the bicarbonate of soda and increase the baking powder to total of 1½ teaspoons.
